The church was built in about 1750 by Stephen Fox-Strangways, 1st Earl of Ilchester (1704–1776) on his estate of Redlynch, to the designs of Nathaniel Ireson of Wincanton, who was also the master-builder of his new mansion house known as Redlynch Park. It replaced the medieval parish church which stood on the same spot.
The stone building has Doulting stone dressings and Welsh slate roofs. The five bays make up a single-cell plan. The porch and vestry have been added since the original construction. On the roof is a bell turret.
